The South 2021 UK Tour Comes To Yorkshire
With the Coronavirus Pandemic putting a stop to Live music around the world for most of 2020/21, it is with a huge sigh and with many fingers crossed that The South can get back on the road and do what they do best – perform the songs of that great British pop institution, The Beautiful South, to the thousands of fans of these timeless classics. And that’s great news for Yorkshire, as they’re scheduled to play three upcoming dates here.
They’re in Halifax at the Square Chapel Arts Centre on Saturday 9th October. And they head down the road to Leeds to play at Warehouse the following night. They round off their visit to Yorkshire by performing at Victoria Hall, Settle on Saturday 6th November.
The South are an impressive 9 piece band that feature former members of The Beautiful South. They include singer Alison Wheeler and lifelong sax player Gaz Birtles. Since Dave Hemingway, the original singer, left the group at the end of 2016, Gaz has moved across to front the band with Alison and taken on vocal duties.
Since the demise of The Beautiful South in 2007, this exciting live band have spent 11 years touring the theatres and festivals of the UK up and down the country, bringing back the full sound and arrangements of these treasured songs – ‘A Little Time’ (the number one single), ‘Perfect 10’, ‘Rotterdam’, ‘Song For Whoever’, ‘Old Red Eyes Is Back’, ‘Good as Gold’, ‘Don’t Marry Her’ plus many more singles and album tracks as well as a few choice South originals. These songs span an impressive 18 year career starting way back in 1989!
Let’s Carry On… Regardless!
